AOC G2460PQU 24" 144Hz monitor.  I finally retired my six year old Acer 24" 1920x1200 monitor to backup duty.  The AOC gives up a lot to the Acer in PQ, but BF4 is like a brand new game playing at 144Hz.

 

Thought I would hate the 1920x1080 resolution, but it's not really that bad.  Happy with the purchase at this point. 


In Topic: Edge & Chrome cannot connect to proxy server (W10 Pro)

Hey Danny.  Check your LAN configuration properties if you haven't already.  The only reason I can imagine that Edge or Chrome won't let you change the Proxy configuration is because your network adapter is set to use a proxy.

 

In Windows 10 there are a couple of different ways to access the network adapter properties.  You can access it through the GUI interface, or you can open a run command and type; inetcpl.cpl

 

Once the Internet Properties window opens up select "Connections"

 

Then click on the box that says "LAN Settings"

 

Once the Local Area Network Settings window opens make sure that;

 

"Automatically Detect Settings" is selected

 

"Proxy server" is not selected

A $100 dollar budget is going to seriously cripple any reasonable chance you have at a major video card upgrade.  If you want to stick with AMD you would have to up your budget and look at something along the lines of a RX 480.  Something along these lines;

 

Asus Dual Fan Radeon RX 480 OC Edition

I guess that other alternative under $100 option would be a used HD 6870 and crossfire them.  Your motherboard supports crossfire, but unsure what brand PSU you have.  If it's a decent power supply then the 700W would handle it.  I've found some used HD 6870s on eBay from reputable sellers in the $50 - $70 price range.

I love Malwarebytes.  They are a great company, with a great product and a sterling reputation, but.........................

 

I'm not so sure that I'd personally be ready to forego a more traditional AV in conjunction with MWB.  Just my two cents worth.
